I told Mom about the internet problems I'm having. Mistake number one, but oh well. Told her I couldn't get on to AIM, and a bunch of websites, like the AIM website, and AOL's website. She got all skeptical and went off to her computer, and came back a few minutes later to tell me that she got onto AOL perfectly fine.

I told her, "AOL the program, or AOL the website?" "AOL the program." "No, Mom, I'm not having a problem with that. I'm talking about AOL the website." "But I'm on AOL the website." "You're on" *confused pause* "No." "That's the one I'm having problems with. That's the one that's not working for me." *another confused pause* "Well, it probably doesn't help to be going through all these doors." (we've got wireless internet in our house, and I'm in my sister's bedroom with the door closed.)

Okay. Is it just me, or is my mom being incredibly obtuse? The number of doors the signal has to go thorugh should not affect only SOME sites, and not others, right? Am I horribly off my mark here?

Grrrr. She never accepts that there's a problem when I tell her I'm having one. Always has to go and try it for herself, and contradict me. Never mind that I've got vastly more experience with computers, and especially the internet, than she does.

Mrowwwwwrrr. Damn it all to hell and back.

I'm at home. And for once, this isn't a rant about anyone in my family. It's a rant about my fucking ISP. AIM died on me during the night. I haven't been able to get back on it since. (Which means no evo chat. Mewwwww!) Erik suspects it's a problem with one of my ISP's routers being down, since it's only some websites that I can't get out to--AIM and AOL and a few others. I can still get to the Evo pages, and Google, etc.

Dammit, it had to be the router than handled AIM connections, didn't it? MROWWWWWRRRRRR.

So bloody annoyed. So many things pissing me off lately. Just want to be back at UCI. Meow. Meowmeowmeowmeow.

My internet connection is back up! Thank God! It was a major pain in the rear trying to reconfigure our settings so that it would work, but I'm so happy to have it back, I don't care.

Oh, and I got an email yesterday from a REALLY old friend. We went to daycare together, and I haven't talked to her since 5th grade. She found my website, which had my email address on it, and emailed me. I emailed her back last night, and then, this morning at school, we bumped into each other! Talk about coincidences! I'm very glad to be back in contact with her, we were great friends, and I've missed her a lot. So I'm doubly happy today, and feeling very good!

WAAHHH!!! Because of the @Home fold up, I don't know how long it'll be until I can get on the 'net again. Could very probably be several weeks. :( :( :( I'm going to miss all of my friends online and on FM until I can get back on.
